Quiksilver reels in Julien David for capsule

Jun 23, 2014

Quiksilver and Julien David have just announced a partnership for a menswear collection. The American board sports group has recruited the luxury streetwear designer to create the "Julien David Quiksilver" line, with the first results to be shown during his spring-summer 2015 runway show in Paris, Wednesday, June 25. This collection is "the first ongoing fashion partnership in the history of Quicksilver," said the brand.

"I am extremely happy to collaborate with the most renowned surfwear brand in the world," said Julien David, who also designs women's apparel. "I grew up wearing Quiksilver clothes and dreaming of this Californian lifestyle," recalls the winner of Andam Grand Prix 2012.

Boardshorts, Quiksilver’s signature item since the brand's founding in the 1970s, is the core component of this capsule, a sign of the fashion world's current enthusiasm for creative urban surfwear. The success of labels such as Saturday Surf in New York and Cuisse de Grenouille or Wait in Paris are more examples of this trend.
